[Testing] IVI prints with wood-filled filament

Dear IVIers,

Thanks to every backer who joined our Challenge Accepted Game – Week #01, we had a great start of the game. We would like to take this chance to invite more backers to join in this weekly game and get the chance to win a FREE 3D Scanner Module.

The Baby Groot shared by joris97 was printed as it gets the most likes. The model was created by Byambaa.

Tips:

  • Wood-filled filaments are typically a composite that combines a PLA base material with wood dust, cork, and other powdered wood derivatives. It is prone to nozzle clog and a larger size nozzle is recommended. This is also why we used a 0.4 mm nozzle in this test.
  • The quality of the filament means a matter of printing success or failure. If the wood particles in the filament is not evenly diffused and vary by size, it is most likely to jam the nozzle, resulting in a printing failure.
